Professor and Director of the Cité-ID Living Lab, Marie-Christine Therrien participated in a scientific panel entitledUrban Resilience and Emergency Response: The Climate Change Perspective at last week’s annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The panel was organized by the Office of the Chief Science Officer of Québec and explored recent innovations to enable the evidence-based development of urban resilience. A summary of the panel is available here.
Marie-Christine Therrien then led a workshop on the development of the Urban Science Advice Group with a group of 20 researchers and practitioners. The establishment of this group is being coordinated by the Fonds de recherché du Québec in collaboration with the ENAP’s Cité-ID Living Lab, at the request of the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA).
The next INGSA conference will take place in Montréal next September.
